president obama's promise, he did not do it. it is hard work to take the engine out of a car and grind it down and repair it. it is hard work, it is boring work. that not the kind of thing gets you elected. president obama's own campaign people argued a couple weeks ago that this issue of improving government management did not cost them a vote in 2012. that is right. but the fact that obama's people are saying it does not really matter to the electorate does not justify the lack of attention. the president is responsible under the constitution for executing every law faithfully. that means pulling a government that works. a government that works. president obama could have a wonderful achievement if he would pay attention over the next two years to the reform of the federal bureaucratic system. boring, absolutely. important, absolutely. it would be a real legacy if he did. host: paul light >> well, let me just give you all an overview of the briefings we've done and to the degree i know we're going to do. prior to this trip, secretary kerry had two briefings with senate leadership on
